Years figuring out how to grow broccoli, countless hours waiting for it to grow, tons of cash paying for everything those efforts entailed –ladies and gentlemen, I finally present to you: a slice of the world’s most expensive frittata!!!
PS, also grew the green onions. So, that brings down the out-of pocket cost a smidge, right?
PPS, wait, I paid for the onion seeds.
PPPS, okay, nevahmind.
Recipe at Food & Wine Magazine. You could also add tarragon–homegrown or not– for extra flavor. Leftover TWMEF good for next day’s breakfast. If you have any left, that is.

Does this include the cost of raising the ducks too?
I think that’s called an “externality”, isn’t it? 🙂
Congratulations–as a gardener, I understand your excitement. There are just those crops that take a lot of experimentation to get the combination correct. When you do, it’s a triumph, regardless of cost and effort. Again, congratulations.
Thank you so much for expressing it so beautifully!!! 🙂
very nice! the broccoli looks wonderful, and the frittata looks delicious! =] thanks for sharing. =]
my aunt has a pretty awesome garden in her backyard too which started off quite small but now, i kid you not, she doesn’t even go to the market for produce anymore, other than potatoes. everything is grown at home and in the yard. ranging from sweet corn to peppers, mint, coriander, pumpkin, eggplant, okra, tomatoes, garlic, onions, spring onions, and SO MUCH MORE.
the feeling is amazing to have your own garden-grown produce in the food you cook. to put so much effort and love in to it and then enjoy it and know where it came from and its freshness
bravo to you and your beautiful frittata! =]

But, it looks really good.
And, better yet, tasted good, too!!! 🙂
Licks piggy lips. What I would give for a small bite… okay you know me too well. I’m a pig. I want to hog the entire expensive thing! XOXO – Bacon
Aw, Bacon, they’re so good, we *all* wanna hog ’em!
The world’s most expensive frittata – but I bet it was worth it:)
Yum yes!!! 🙂
Very nice. I think it would be the worlds tastiest as well as most expensive frittata!
You betcha! 🙂
Grown with love, I can’t help but think that the food is more easily able to nourish your body and soul. Yumm!
Love & sweat & tears 🙂 (I will skip the cussing at cabbage butterflies part–or maybe that’s just the seasoning!) 😉
It is indeed a very beautiful frittata. Did it taste great?
I bet it was also the world’s most delicious frittata! It sure looks like it 🙂
Did you use duck eggs?
We do not eat the eggs–between the vet visits and my concerns about what might be lurking in non-agriculturally-rated soil–no, we do not eat the eggs, alas.
